L'Equinox - Keep It Loose 2022
(Swartland, South Africa)
A glorious orange wine from this young and dynamic winemaker in the Swartland region of South Africa. This is made from Colombard and Grenache Blanc, spends around 7 days on its skins and is aged in old barrels for 6 months.
Such a beautiful texture, very clean and approachable, very soft tannins... the perfect easy going orange wines for novices and connoisseurs alike.
Made by MC Stander, a newcomer to the Swartland wine scene who leases vines he farms organically as well as sourcing fruit from other local organic and biodynamic growers. MC is always looking for freshness in his wines and has a light touch in the cellar, but keeps an eye on refinement and clarity, giving his wines a true sense of identity and purpose.
